Travel now advice from London Northwestern Railway

London Northwestern Railway (LNR) is advising passengers to be set off early this afternoon.

LNR is running a reduced service today due to industrial action by members of the RMT union.

Services to and from London have been severly affected by non-striking staff refusing to cross picket lines.

The train company is therefore advising passengers to set off as early as possible today and allow more time to complete their journeys.

Passengers are advised to check their journeys using live information boards before travelling.

Anyone holding tickets for travel today who chooses not to travel can obtain a full refund or use their ticket tomorrow (Sunday) or on Monday at no extra cost.
